[id07] granny'ark - one bottle & three seas

granny'ark is michelle irving from vancouver (canada) who generally has several irons in the fire. these include making rather organic electronic music, delicate video visuals, some drawings, fine food, and lately geek-out sessions in max/msp. granny'ark is dedicated to a compositional approach which steps out of the loop de loop but also explores minimal techs better qualities. she has performed internationally as a live pa artist and her visual work has also been featured in a number of festivals. this summer granny'ark will be hitting the road again to promote her first 12" ep on berlin based zora lanson label and of course first net release on interdisco.

this ep is a little collection of stories from special encounters with special people and places:
wind sounds from a flying beer can inspired by françois laporte. a musical portrait of a portrait photographer. sounds of a day lounging around an old wooden houseboat, and a long sunset dingy around false creek eating a bowl of fresh cherries. a month long stay on a beautiful farm by the baltic sea.

[ tracklist ]

1 - fliegender behälter
2 - grant
3 - sooks' boat
4 - talu

A departure from Granny Ark's previous minimal and atmospheric efforts, this EP is more colorful and with crunchier sounds. Though Granny'Ark claims to cite organic influences, this release is anything but. Rather the music seems futuristic, the 'short stories' she describes likelier belong to a distant future than the present. The listener might imagine her/himself wandering a natural lanscape with a horde of robots on a nature study. The pieces are powerful, beautifully produced and have strong emotional overtones.

This is an excellent lush electronic release, a hard copy artifact of this work must be procured.

A close counterpart to Granny Ark's latest effort would be "Crashed by Car".
